I still have a few PT101 sheets which we could use - whenever I'll run another test; I stated in the thread about the Epson 502 inks that it would be the last - very last one...............
The HP paper is selling in Europe under the partnumber HP CR674A .

Seems like CR674A not available , CR672A replaced it. Just placed an order on amazon.de

The Hongsam K seems fade faster on Glossy papers.
Seem like I should keep my old expired T673 K.

On Paper HC200g Cast Coated Glossy paper, the T5431+T06G(T542) seems very strange. I should read the stripe again today.

The above test missing the K ink from T522, I would start another test sets.
Plan to select CMYK all dye ink sets from GI-73, T502(Not include K), T522, T673, T664, 85N, Hongsam EverNew.
This time would print from the same printer XP2101 & same media setup.

Here is the color stripe in RGB color space, I also upload the txt file to generate the customize patch.
T5431+T06G(T502) seems like read error, update new chart read.

The T673 M seems very weak on Glossy paper, but K performs pretty well .
T00V(T522) seems like not so bad on CMY, but I need another test to check about the K. From EPSON Inkjet paper(matte) , it's as worst as T664 K.

The CR672A paper is specified to come in a box made of recycled paper, but it is not clear if the photo paper itself is the same as the CR674A, I may order a box and check if the OBA content is as low as in the CR674A.

Agreed! I am trying to get that paper, not yet found it.

Searching HP Premium Plus Photo Paper, 300gsm? glossy​

From your table, I still have some Canon PT 101.
I've searched here in the UK and there's loads of the 20 sheets variant. From what I can see the 50 sheet pack has been discontinued which would explain problems finding it.

Nice test, what OS are you using to do the tests. Linux?

Win7 + EPSON official driver + MS paint
Not yet checking on Linux, since the driver might available from EPSON official or gutenprint.
I have another side project on gutenprint about change ink channel colors
(Convert a EPSON T50 from CcMmYK => CMYKRG), but no much progress since I have no idea howto print correctly.
The photoprint seems have some problem with the newest gutenprint.

I have a pack of the CR672A - 20 sheets on order, I'll check if that's the same paper as the CR674A

Dispatched:weee! Actually shipping from UK.
But I still need to wait another few days for the transhipment from the warehouse in Germany to TW.
